A veteran of the U.S. Navy, J was a graduate of the Baptist Bible Seminary in Johnson City, NY and was previously a pastor at Sherman Baptist Church. Along with his spiritual guidance, he will be missed for his wit, sense of humor, and one-liners. His greatest joys were spending time in his church and with his family.

The family wishes to thank the staff of both Crossroads Hospice and the Doylestown Health Care Alzheimer’s Unit.
